October 15, 2012: Lecture by Eddie Paul: The 2012 Jewish Life in Germany Tour

In June of 2012, Eddie Paul joined a group of North American Jews invited as part of the “Jewish Life in Germany” programme to tour sites of Jewish interest in Berlin and Dresden. Roughly divided between Holocaust memorials, synagogues, Jewish schools, rabbinical seminaries, and community centres, this annual programme is organized to enhance the understanding of postwar Jewish communal life in Germany. The presentation l looks at the borderlines of institutional Jewish identity in 21st century Berlin through metaphors of identity and reconciliation.

Introduced by Trudis Goldsmith-Reber, co-chair English Cultural Committee.
